wheel and tyre match?

wheel and tyre match? was created by treps
Hi, My searches on the subject of wheels and tyres for my Gen4 SZ5 have given me a headache.
So I am diving in whilst trying to be specific with my query.
I am looking at a new set of winter wheels from Jimnybits:
www.jimnybits.com/jimny-18-on/wheels-whe...lar-steel-wheel.html
and a set of Michelin Agilis Crossclimate in 215/70 R15.

Main use for these are mountain tracks in winter with wet rocks, ice and some snow.
I also use the car on roads. I would change to the standard alloy wheels and tyres in milder weather.
The Jimny is standard - no lift kit fitted.
Will this combo work? Any tyre rubbing issues? Is there a better combo?
As an aside, could these Agilis tyres be fitted on the standard OEM alloy wheels?
Any suggestions or comments welcome. And yes, I am new at this... Many thanks.

I'd be inclined towards keeping the original alloy wheels as they will take the tyres without issue. The cost of a new set of wheels will more than cover repeated changes of tyres over the life of the tyre.

Yes they would work. However standard fitment is 195/80R15. In the snow and ice the narrower tyre would probably perform better.

Thank you. I like your mud tyres but even I know that they would not be suitable for the mountain in the winter!
